I Am Confused About Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 493 People


    I'm confused about how much you are supposed to give. I am confused about how much you are supposed to forgive? Especially in marraige. I know love is supposed to have no bounds but when you start loving your partner more than yourself, its a scary thing.

    He told me this: do you think i would be

    so cold? As if i'm numb to feel anything? Knowing that what i can only have is this. This is so hard for me because i still love you.

    I'm so confused about all the relationship.

    I'm so tired of everything I don't even feel like explaining. All I want is a girl who f cares about me, a loving one, a one I can rely on. This is 90% of my expectation for a long term relationship. Just a girl who truly genuinely cares. Then, of course comes: brains, sense of...

    The guy I have been dating

    for the last couple of months sent a text message to me. It said "something to share" together with a picture of a concert he is in. So I'm confused. Did he send it to me because he is thinking of me. Or why? It upsets me because that's something I would have loved to share...

    I like older men I've noticed.

    All my friends give me crap about it saying "eww you like older men." But I think reality is I'm attracted to how mature they are. Because guys my age are all immature. I just really don't know what to do now.

    Stupid Love Movies

    Movies involving love are very misleading, they teach us that it is down to fate that we will find our true love. This makes us just sit around and wait for it to happen when it never will. Also that it will happen when we least expect it which is not true b/c as a teen it's the...

    I haven't really actively looked

    for love. I usually just experience it through others peoples stories. I am curious and know that it will change my perspective on things, but I've never have been interested in looking for it myself. Must just be the age I am at or maybe I'm a late- bloomer.

    So there's this girl.

    And we just connected like I've never connected to anyone before. We both have a passion for music. And I don't know. We just hit it off. And I'm afraid of going to fast. But things just happened I guess. I don't know how to do this. Rant over.

    People have described love

    as a longing to be with a person. Someone you can rely on, cry with, and celebrate with. Someone who you can simply talk to. If you're a lover I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. And please know that I know love isn't only the things I've listed above. Anyways, I've never...
